I don’t use ClamAV, but I’ll bet it runs as a non-root user.  In CentOS 7, only root can write to /var/log.

You should create a clamav directory under /var/log and give the ClamAV user write access to it, then configure ClamAV to write its logs there.

That, or switch to syslog or similar, if ClamAV allows it.
